Happy Weight Loss Wednesday!

Health & Fitness Expert
Liz Bonis
You know, I just love Liz Bonis!  If you haven't heard of her, you must get acquainted.  She is the vivacious radio/tv personality of Lighten Up With Liz...and a home grown product of Rochester NY.  A little known fact about Liz: she is a graduate of the school that I work in!  Faith Temple School (now known as Destiny Christian School and Preschool).  She is one of our claims to fame!

Liz is not only a health & lifestyle reporter but she is a registered dietitian, a certified nutritionist, a certified personal trainer, and a diabetes educator. And she had time to get her Masters degree in Communications, as well. 

With boundless energy and a great sense of humor...Liz has the rare gift of bringing joy and laughter to what can be a very touchy subject:  WEIGHT!

So many of us look forward to the interesting anecdotes and funny "asides" from Liz as she has her brief radio conversation every day at 8:15 am with Beth & Chet. We drive to work with her. She fills her show up laughter, the latest in medical studies and really interesting tidbits that you'd "only hear here"!  She researches for us, reads for us, translates medical jargon into just plain English!  We love Liz!  

Liz is seen regularly on TV Channel 12 in Cincinnati . 
She also appears on 13WHAM in Rochester NY and has a very popular 
daily talk show on WHAM 1180 AM radio in Rochester NY.

Here is a nugget, straight from Liz's website Lighten Up With Liz, that may help you figure out what's going on if weight loss isn't coming easily:

The “Dynamic Duo” for Weight Loss
International Journal of Obesity
June 10, 2011

"When it comes to losing weight, we’ve all heard the mantra “eat less, exercise more” right?  But a new report says ther are two other elements critical to successfully losing weight and keeping it off.

In a dual-phase randomized trial of 472 obese people, researchers found that managing stress and treating depression made a big difference to long-term weight loss.

This makes sense if you tend to overeat when you’re stressed out, but even’t if you don’t, if you are finding it a struggle to manage your weight you might want to have your stress and depression levels checked out.  If you can’t remove what’s stressing you, employ a coping mechanism such as exercise.  It may also help ease depression; about one-third of people who exercise on a regular basis find that their mood improves with exercise."



What's a coping mechanism for you?  I must confess that mine is usually chocolate! No surprise, huh!  Think I should Liz's exercise suggestion and see how it goes?  Leslie Sansone DVD, where did I leave you?
